Set up the vzw.blackberry.com account on your phone and you will begin seeing your gmail come to this account. It is so fast, I usually get it a few seconds BEFORE my laptop does. Also, you can change your options so when you send email from your vzw.blackberry.com account it appears as your gmail address.
Hope this helps.
You shouldn't have to do this. I have gmail and it's instant. I just set it up as my main email on my phone (BIS) and did not have to forward any of the mail to another account. *unless it does that automatically...*
